This year the focus is on the almond trees and bees. Through the Fair’s Ag Education program students will create hand print farm animals and a group project that will learn about the importance of almonds and bees in agriculture. Each class participating, will have their projects entered and showcased at the 2016 Fair.

Specifically developed curriculum kits will assist teachers with instructing students about the agricultural industry and its importance to life.  The kits include a book and activities for the classroom, so that each classroom can create their unique “Bees & Trees” project.
